versus board of education. it had been years since selma and montgomery, since dr. king had told america of his dream -- all of it culminating in the passage of the civil rights act and the voting rights act. the founders of this caucus could look back and feel pride in the progress that had been made. they could feel confident that america was finally moving in the right direction. but they knew they couldn't afford to rest on their laurels. they couldn't be complacent. there were still too many inequalities to be eliminated. too many injustices to be overturned. too many wrongs to be righted. that's why the cbc was formed -- to right wrongs; to be the conscience of the congress. and at the very first cbc dinner, the great actor and activist, ossie davis, told the audience america was at a crossroad. and although his speech was magnificent and eloquent, he boiled his message down to a nice little phrase when it came to how america would move forward. he said, "it's not the man, it's the plan." it's not the man, it's the plan. that was true 40 years ago. it is true today.
